Still trekking

We´ve been trekking the backside of Torres del Paine and are about to embark on the W now. 7 days in, and about 4 to go. Yes, we are looking to spend an extra day or so here, because it is absolutely spectacularly mind-blowing to hike here.

As for the "holidays" it looks like Chile is the big winner. We´re trying to get on a 4-day boat trip from Puerto Natales to Puerto Montt to arrive there on the 24th. Then do a bit of hiking in that part of the world before making our way to Vina del Mar / Valparaiso for New Years. There´s a beach there, albeit a pacific ocean one (not so warm, but gorgeous!)

Internet access is sparse for us - WiFi is everywhere but no computers ... borrowed this one in a refugio. So talk to you in a few days again.


  1. Jan and Inga,
    Living vicariously through your blog and loving every moment following you through your travels. If you have a chance try to visit Zapallar just north of Valparaiso, There is a lovely hotel on a cliff and a lovely cliff walk and a beach. I spent an amazing long weekend there many years ago...sigh!
    Can't wait to see you when you return.

  2. Hi guys - I got an email about your new years accomodations? I've forwarded it to Inga's email.

    I miss you lots and can't wait to see you in the new year!
